Suffragette Summary

Based on true events about the foot soldiers of the early feminist movement who were forced underground to evade the State.

Adam Graham

"Suffragette" is a meaningful history lesson, but as a movie, it plays like a slog through history class.

Alison Willmore

The weight of the entrenched injustices these characters stagger under is enough to keep you on the verge of tears throughout.

Rafer Guzman

An intriguing premise dampened by thin characters and a formulaic story.

Kristin Tillotson

Mulligan, in particular, delivers, bringing believability to a role that's quite a stretch, given the transformation her character has to go through from workaday mum to first-wave feminist superhero.

Sarah Bryan Miller

Morgan's writing is occasionally pedestrian, but the sweep of the story, the performances and Gavron's vision make up for it.
